I would guess that Fedora puts the pkgconfig (gtk-sharp-2.0.pc etc)
files in a devel package of some kind. MD requires these to detect the
GTK assemblies.

Beware also that Fedora packages break things by moving all the noarch
assemblies from lib to to lib64. It's probably not relevant to this
problem but it may cause other issues for you.
